IMPORTANT: Before I begin this article, I want to remind you to take the very brief survey I asked you to respond to last Wednesday. I've received quite a number of responses to date, however, the more responses I receive, the better the information will be. The survey will only be active for one more week. After next Wednesday I'll be compiling the results and won't accept any further responses. The survey is short and simple. It shouldn't take you longer than 1 minute to respond. It is completely anonymous. I have no idea of who responded or how you responded. And, I want to thank you and those who have already responded for granting me this one priceless minute of your time. Here's the link to the survey. Survey Link Please respond now, if you haven't already.
WTF? In today's vernacular those three letters have assumed the meaning of a pretty familiar and graphic question? But, I have chosen to use the same three letters to pose another question. Perhaps, many of us will adopt them to our own vocabulary of modern "text" abbreviations. Here is my question:
WTF? Where's The Fire?
Okay, for the grammarians reading this, technically, "Where's" is a contraction of where is. But, give me this one. The question is still valid, and, who knows, I may be starting a new text abbreviation.
The question, "where's the fire?" is one that has been settling in with me for a number of years. As you know, I always attempt to be honest and avoid being hypocritical, so I'm not only pointing the finger at others in a hurry, I have also been one of those people in a hurry. Infrequently, and that's very infrequently, I still allow myself to get into a situation of chasing a fire.
